The Property
An elegant Regency style Victorian town house situated in the heart of Southsea's conservation area, close to Southsea shopping, restaurants and just a few minutes' walk to the Kings Theatre.

The property is thought to have been built c1840 and has been significantly refurbished and maintained to a high standard by the present owners and offers the very best in contemporary living whilst retaining original features and the character of a bygone era.

Approached over the private off street parking area, you are immediately struck by the ornate porch lead canopy that extends across the terrace with ironwork railings leading to both the basement level and main ground floor entrances and storage.

The front door opens into a long hallway that leads you to the sitting room and family room with an internal staircase to the hand built contemporary kitchen and dining room at basement level.

The present owners have adapted the extended part of the house to provide a fourth bedroom with full size en-suite bathroom that would be ideal for overnight guests or perhaps an elderly relative who wants a degree of independence, or for an au pair or teenager.

The master bedroom has wall to wall and floor to ceiling fitted wardrobes and is adjacent to the generous family bathroom. Two further double bedrooms are located on the second floor.

To the front of the property is a paved off street parking area whilst there is a paved South West facing court yard garden to the rear, perfect for relaxing and entertainment.

Presented in excellent order throughout, an early viewing is essential to fully appreciate this family home.
